Date-Sweetened Hemp Milk (Two Ways!)

I finally made homemade nut milk. Or I should say hemp milk. It was about time! Everyone has been making their homemade nut milk for years and somehow, I just tried it for the first time a few weeks ago. I think one of the reasons I never made homemade nut milk before is because I never knew where to get a good nut milk bag. I had given up on the idea of making homemade nut milk until I stumbled upon Ellie’s Best. They were generous enough to let me try one of their’s and I have to say, I absolutely love it! I know many other food bloggers who use their nut milk bag and now I know why. It’s good quality, it cleans easily and it’s fairly cheap. If you…

4-Ingredient Chocolate Nice Cream Smoothie

This smoothie. I know that not everyone has a food processor or a Yonanas, so I wanted to make a blender version of my Chocolate Peanut Butter Soft Serve (Nice Cream). You get the same great taste as nice cream, but in the form of a smoothie. Okay, I should maybe call this recipe a shake because it tastes nothing close to a healthy and fruity smoothie… Nope, this recipe tastes exactly like a chocolate milkshake. I should mention that even though it doesn’t taste healthy, this shake/smoothie is as healthy as it gets.  It’s made with only four ingredients (FOUR)! I used frozen bananas as a base (just like in my nice cream), which gives you a sweet, creamy ice cream-like shake. I then added some cocoa powder and nut butter…

New Year Tropical Green Smoothie

It’s back to reality this week. Well at least it is for me and probably most students, so I thought I’d share a healthy green smoothie to start the week off right.  Is it cold where you live? As I’m writing this, we just had a big snowstorm. Now, I know that drinking a cold smoothie isn’t ideal in this kind of weather, but if you drink it inside, covered in blankets, then it’s not as bad. Right? Also, this smoothie is filled with tropical flavors, so if you close your eyes, you could imagine yourself on a beach somewhere warm… Last year, at this time exactly, I was flying back from Mexico with Shaun. Yeah, that’s not the case this year and it probably won…

Rudolph Nutella Donuts & Other Healthy Holiday Desserts

Happy Christmas Eve Eve! Here it is, a compilation of all my holiday desserts! I hope you find some inspiration for last-minute Christmas treats or even last-minute gifts?! Suggestion: fill a beautiful box with a loaf of pumpkin bread, truffles and cut-out cookies, then add a gift card for your friend/relative’s favorite restaurant! You could even add a copy of your favorite cookbook in there. It’s the ultimate foodie gift.  Now enjoy these Christmas desserts, plus a new recipe at the end. 🙂 Easy Holiday Truffles I posted these truffles earlier this week and they’re the perfect addition to your holiday feast! They’re probably the healthiest and easiest truffles you’ll ever find. They’re made from only 3 ingredients, then rolled in beet powder, coconut…

Creamy Sugar-Free Hot Chocolate

A sugar-free hot chocolate that’s better than any sugar-filled hot chocolate? YES PLEASE.  Enter this creamy sugar-free hot chocolate… Or as I like to call it: Gingerbread men hot tub. You can’t tell me that’s not what it looks like? 😉  Just look at that frothy hot chocolate… I’m envying that cookie. It’s -30ºC here today and the wind is strong, so a hot tub would be nice. Or a vacation on a tropical island.  I don’t know what’s wrong with me, but I’ve been feeling extremely drained in the last month. I come home from work exhausted and I go to bed at 9 pm at the latest. Then I wake up at 6 am…
